  • I agree about appreciation of the online vibe of Pentax users. But I feel inclined to add my experience today, after seeing your comment about focus needs (which I know were in jest :  )    I had ...
  • Replied in Mojave
    I would definitely make sure to read through peoples' experiences with Mojave before making the leap on https://www.macintouch.com   or similar.  The file system follies alone has given me pause, ...
  • Delete it and any file it left behind. And back away slowly.
  • One thing about bus powered portables that I find myself saying over and over again: not all portable external drives are alike. It used to be only a portion of them but now nearly any external ...
  • I've had this problem. In my case it was always due to a folder of files not copying over entirely before the drive became unmounted, either by Apple's finicky USB with certain drives or the drive ...
  • There was an appeal to fusion drives when they first came out, but now one would just get an SSD for speed or several terabytes of a platter drive for large storage. Add in the downsides mentioned ...
  • A few thoughts: Cloud archiving is great. Wouldn't consider using it without local drive archives, though, and vice versa. Portable drives are a terrific convenience but if you get the blister ...
  • I never shut down. Always sleep. Restarts figure in occasionally but not often.
  • Replied in Mail issue
    Since you've been to the Mail Font prefs to check the color box you've no doubt done this too, but make sure the quoting boxes in the Composing tab didn't lose their check.
  • Thanks for the responses. To be clear, I don't need full PS/Affinity function pixel editing while staying raw, just that the raw end can take the image to the end in most of my cases, with ...
  • I'm not so much concerned with an original existing with the first run of edits. That's pretty simple to keep. But I do want to maintain the workflow I've had with Aperture (and could with LR) ...
  • Both are valid for short term storage at this point. More vital is that you don't limit yourself to one (or two) drives where the files exist.
  • ACD's ProStudio 4 is an OS X app, not exactly comparable to ACDsee Ultimate, which is Windows only. All of their OS X counterparts seem not to be ports of their Windows products but different animals.
  • Can Affinity utilize Rawtherapee as its developer within the app, just substituting for its own, so a TIFF does't need to be generated every time? That's what I'm trying to avoid. Thanks
  • I appreciate it, irv00. I may end up in LR but my needs are less than the expense of it and PS as well. ACDsee Ultimate is at $100 for a week, so that and Affinity may end up being the pair, ...
  • Looking to stop waffling and begin putting projects in a post-Aperture/assorted pixel editors workflow (which through 10.11.6 has still held up). When I shoot raw and spend time on the images, ...
  • It's pretty common in the audio world. For one, the A/D interface needs a port and it has to be fast enough, and you stick with that interface for its sound and features. My top pro interface is ...
  • I agree in principle with your points, but as someone who needed several times to deal with what should have been a simple servicing of a swappable part of a computer and was a iMac nightmare (or ...
  • Here's what I've always seen as the biggest problem with Apple's making their laptops rely on docks for connectivity:  It's been decades since they've supported the desktop market. When they did ...
